Hello, I'm shooting a short using the DVX100 or possibly the HVX200. The shoot calls for a lot of tracking - walking alongside subjects that are walking.

Can anybody suggest the best Glidecam/Fig Rig type gizmo to use? I basically want something that will eliminate footstep jitter, but a Steadycam is probably overkill (and out of budget). I can rent a Fig Rig for around $40 a day, which might do the trick, but I'm not convinced it does anything that the onboard cam stabilizer wouldn't do, since it doesn't seem to attach to the operator's body at all.

Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated!

Glidecam 2000 Pro?

Glidecam Smooth Shooter?
